About meTrying to make some sort of life for myself in academia.

About my libraryIf I hate a book it will probably not be in my library, so although I will be using the 1 star rating, this does not necessarily mean that I really disliked the book.

Ratings sorta mean this:
1 = Did not enjoy reading it, but it's not bad enough, and is perhaps too important, to expel from my library.
1 1/2 = "Oh yeah, I read that . . . it was okay."
2 = It was decent, maybe better than that. But I had some problems with it.
2 1/2 = Good.
3 = Good to very good-ish.
3 1/2 = Very good to very very good-ish.
4 = Better than great, and I think about these books often.
4 1/2 = Fucking fantastic.
5 = Has re-wired my brain and I have not been the same since.

Basically anything 3 or 3 1/2 and up is really really good and I would recommend without hesitation, if it is the sorta thing you might be into. And not everything I've read is rated....
